Brian:

I like to have things in front of me that I don't have to sort through to find or hit refresh at times. This was one of them. I'm pretty familiar with the Sox media guide so I can find what I need in a flash.

Feel free if you wish though to check and see how accurate my memory was.

Hemond by the way, in my opinion was the finest GM the Sox ever had because no GM was as badly behind the eight ball as he was when he took over in September 1970. The Sox literally were in worse shape than the expansion franchises and no Sox GM had to go through the financial issues with ownership like he did having to deal with Art Allyn, John Allyn and Bill Veeck.

When he actually had a little stability and money to work with he put together the 83 club. Wonder what he might have accomplished had he had those resources his entire Sox career.

I'd say Kenny is probably the 3rd best GM in my opinion behind Roland and Frank Lane and ahead of Ed Short and Scheueler.
